Owner/Administrator, Andrea Roe
My name is Ms. Andrea Roe. I have been involved with Montessori and teaching since I was 16. I took the St Nicholas correspondence Montessori course in 1984 and have attended numerous workshops and seminars over the past 30 years. I have 4 beautiful children of my own that I am very proud of. My oldest daughter Miss Sage is a ECE at our school, and in school herself, Miss Mariah is an occasional assistant substitute and working on her degree as well. My two sons Jacob and Garrett are students at Loveland High School. They keep me busy with their sports and band concerts. I am currently working on my degree in Child Psychology and intend on sticking with it until I receive my PHD. In my spare time I enjoy my family the most! When we can we enjoy fishing and being outdoors with our horses. Children put a song in my heart; I am grateful to have the opportunity to serve the families of Greeley.
I am was born in Pueblo Colorado, but grew up mostly in Denver and Colorado Springs. I am a single mom of my beautiful eighteen-year-old daughter, Alaura. I adopted her at the age of five. I started working with young children straight out of High School in 1991. I quickly discovered that teaching was my passion. I am now in my twenty-eighth year of teaching young children. I have worked in many different fields, including as a CNA, airport security, and as a nanny through the years. I always came back to teaching. In 2001 I was introduced to the wonderful world of Montessori while living in Oregon for a short time. When I moved back to Colorado I found another Montessori School and after working for a while as an assistant, I was recommended to take the Montessori training. In 2008 I received my Montessori Certification to teach children 2 ½ , to six years of age. I am incredibly blessed to be able to help these children on their educational path.
I was born in Tucson AZ and I lived there for most of my life up until 2016 I moved to Greeley CO. I have a 4 yr. old daughter. I have worked with children from all ages. As child I grew up taking care of younger children and really got more involved working with children as teenager. I have worked at other preschools and daycares in Arizona for 5 yrs. I am working on getting my CDA and to further my education in the Montessori program as well as continue my own child’s education in Montessori Schooling.

Hi, my name is Maija Rae Brown. I’ve been working at The Montessori Academy of Northern Colorado for a little over a year now. Currently, I’m attending Aims Community College for my AAS in Early Childhood Education. What I appreciate the most about the Montessori Method is that the child gets to take the initiative in their education and what they want to work on. When I’m not working with children or on my studies, I’m working as the second shooter in my mom’s photography business or relaxing at home with my fiancé and our two cats.
